Almost all the big cricketing country players are playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Pakistan players are currently banned from playing in the league. On this, Bhaskar also conducted a survey on social media platforms. In this, 70.9% of the fans believe that Pakistani players should not be given a chance in the IPL. At the same time, only 29.1% of the fans feel that cricket should be kept away from Indo-Pak tension and players from neighboring countries should be given a chance in the league.
Pakistan players got their first and last chance in the first season of 2008. Then 12 Pakistani players played in the IPL. After the terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan team in 2009 and the 26/11 incident, it was decided that no Pakistani cricketer will play in the IPL.
